As far as this franchise goes, it looks like it's game over as the only thing extinct is the creativity.

Groovy bit of multiplex pandemonium

The action at times is pretty effective, from an attack by an infected flock of crows, to some brutal fighting in a sand-engulfed Las Vegas.

Fun, forgettable stuff -- but also a (slightly) better film than the reviews would have you believe.

Aussie filmmaker Russell Mulcahy piles on the atmosphere to make up for lack of originality in the script or production design. He also knows which bones to throw zombie movie fans, who relish the methodology of destroying the slow moving freaks

If you are willing to leave your brains and good taste at the door, you may well find Resident Evil: Extinction to be a guilty pleasure of the purest genetic strain.

On its own action/horror terms, this is the most successful 'threequel' of the year, if only because it actually improves on its silly predecessors.

It's an unapologetically popcorn movie but it's done just how you like it, with some really special moments. Enjoy.

A grimly efficient horror thriller that delivers exactly what the other two entries did: monsters, gore, and a heavily armed Milla Jovovich in boots and garters.

Equal parts Mad Max and Day of the Dead, this third and supposedly final entry in the Resident Evil franchise is no less derivative than its predecessors but moves along at a brisk clip.

It's the first of the agonizing Resident Evil movies that could remotely be considered fun.

Fast-paced and filled with brisk action sequences, the film should reasonably satisfy the devotees.

Even with all the problems this film has, it works because Jovovich really holds the screen and your attention. When she's in battle mode you have no choice but to just shut your mind off and go with it. It's a perfect time waster that won't challenge you

Resident Evil: Extinction brings to mind an alt-metal remake of Romero's Day of the Dead.

I could probably spend an entire weekend watching Milla twirl her kukris

Its goals are modest, but it delivers.

With clever lifts from "The Birds" and Cormac McCarthy's bleak "The Road," you have a rare movie that wasn't screened for critics yet is actually worth watching.

...not as action-packed or gory as the first film, but for those who enjoy the cinematic series and are hoping to see a worthy winding-down free of cop-outs, Mulcahy's monster movie won't disappoint.

Terrific B-level zombie havoc...surprisingly agile, annoyed, and joyously straight-to-the-point violent.
